Xiangmi Park and Library

Shenzhen, China

Xiangmi Park is a historic landmark for Shenzhen. Used as a research center in the early days of the city, its matured lychee orchards have turned into a matured landscape. The transformation into a public city park keeps these assets and adds new functions and recreational landscapes. A new library geared towards sustainability knowledge and education in the middle of the orchard allows for experiencing it and is a new vista terrace across the city.

In the video, local users tell about their take on the park.
